Whatsapp, the most popular chatting app, which was already in rumors for the standalone desktop version has finally launched it on the Windows and the Mac. The desktop version will be available with the same features and shortcut that have been on WhatsApp web. But it contradicts in a single feature i.e. the chatting platform does not depend on the desktop version.
If you want to grab WhatsApp in your desktop, then download it from the WhatsApp’s blog from the desktop browser. On your handset, you just have to open your WhatsApp account and scan the QR code. Under settings, the WhatsApp web function is available there. After download, it gets synced with the WhatsApp and due to this, the users will be updated with the notifications and will get keyboard shortcuts too and much more.
On the occasion of the launch, WhatsApp declared in a blog post, “Today we’re introducing a desktop App, so you have a new way to stay in touch anytime and anywhere – whether on your phone or computer at home or work. Like WhatsApp Web, our desktop app is simply an extension of your phone: the app mirrors conversations and messages from your mobile device.”
If you are still the Windows 7 user, then don’t even dream of installing WhatsApp on your desktop. The desktop version is available for the operating system running on Windows 8+ or the Mac OS 10.9 and above.
From past few days, WhatsApp is the hot topic because the company is launching and coming with the new updates. The company is bragging about its new introduced features. The App is already in talks and is anticipated to come with the callback feature, video calls, zip file sharing support, voice mails, NFC tags, and group invites
